I have never played an Ace Combat. The story beats they are going for in this one heavily remind me of certain anime, which is pretty cool. Anime with Jets, Jets and Anime. It just works.

Nice, yet more stuff from the books. Meve (from Blood of Elves) and on, the "White Queen", the only ruler of the Northern Kingdoms after the death of Calanthe (Ciri's Grandmother). Meve was the one who knighted Geralt after the "Battle for the Bridge on the Yaruga" (spanish illustration) in which he offically became known as "Geralt of Rivia."

I always get a kick out of how much of super fans they are of the book series - if it wasn't for them bringing Witcher 1 to the West, I never would have known about the books at all. Anyways, this is exactly what I was waiting for with Gwent, since they mentioned early on they would add SP stuff to it.

Hmm, that AoE IV trailer showed artwork depicting multiple historical Eras, from AoE 1 all the way to AoE 3.

I think it's easier just to forget that its Prey related or System Shock. Prey is a portal fps game and a real System Shock 3 is in the works, so it can't really be SS3 either. If it helps, just rename this game "Talos I". A free-form FPS that takes ideas or inspirations from other games.

Probably off topic, but since the SC Remaster was released yesterday I was looking around my older hard drive and realized I still have the original SC patched to 1.16.1 on it. And what do you know, I was digging around and found the discs on my shelf too.

Yup. Requires their Digital version of Starcraft Anthology Vanilla, which is free.

To sum up. Basically as challenging as the previous ones. To describe it, quasi-arcade with realism (like if you ever wanted a Company of Heroes to be 'realistic' this is that)

News Comments > Sudden Strike 4 Released
4. Re: Sudden Strike 4 Released Aug 11, 2017, 19:15 Task
 
Alright - now I had time to load it up.

----
* Runs and loads great (and fast on my machine)
* No crashes so far (but only played one mission)
* Looks and sounds awesome

Same style of game as SS1 and 2 (I've never played SS3, so I don't know if any features carried over from that one)
- You still don't build units (only receive reinforcements if the mission was designed that way)
- Units behave the same (infantry have greater view distance and need to be utilized as forward observers to help spot for Tanks)
- 'Repair Vehicles' still have the same functions including building pontoon bridges if a bridge gets destroyed
- All infantry and vehicles still have limited ammunition supply and require resupply from a ammo/repair vehicle if you have one (you can also find ammo dumps that the 'enemy' units utilize)
- You can still capture field guns if you kill the infantry operating them
- Campaigns are the same as the previous games, actually the very same setup as SS1 "German" "Soviet" and "Allied" (limited briefing with a general overview on what you need to do, but are based on historical battles)
- Mission Ratings are the same (1 to 3 stars based on your performance)

Additions/differences:
- If infantry are not engaged they heal automatically (at least on Normal difficulty), however if they are critically wounded they require a Medic (medic infantry unit is new)
- You can now kill the crew inside a tank if you penetrate the armor and do not hit the ammunition (causes a complete explosion/totaled vehicle). You can also unload a tank crew from a tank at any time and Also you can then capture 'crew-killed' tanks for use.
- If you select infantry and tanks and move them together, they now move at the same speed and stay in formation (you can also modify formation)
- Right click is used more for an action rather than left-click like the old games
- You can now use Real Time Pause
- Objectives are more 'clear' as to when you actually complete them (at least in SS1, objectives never mark as 'complete')
- Infantry automatically hunker down in heavier cover (like trees or tall grass)
- Vehicles now require fuel
- Tanks have commander hatches you can open to increase a tank's view distance (obviously leaves commander vulnerable)

I pre-ordered it, but haven't had time today to load it up yet. All I can say is from the videos right now it looks exactly like Sudden Strike 1 and 2, mechanically wise with some extra refined features. You do not build units at all in the originals, and need to know how to use every single unit given to you effectively - A Sniper unit, for instance has the most 'view' distance and can be used to take out forward positions like Artillery or AT guns. Where-as tanks have short view distance, shorter than AT guns and need infantry or a sniper to tag along with them to 'increase' their view distance so they can shoot at their maximum range otherwise they will die easily against well-hidden/dug-in units.

I'm currently going through SS1 now and it is brutally difficult - which is definitely how I remember it way back in 2001 when I tried it once (I believe the first German mission) and quit with the first mission because of the difficulty. Now that I'm playing it again with a different mind sight and learning the intricacies of the original game, its the addictive kind of difficulty where I feel I need to play just a little bit longer to complete the real meat-grinder missions.

Sort of like Gundam, but not. Now there was an actual Gundam game based on the original series with combined warfare stuff, that would be cool (piloted more than just Gundams or Zakus).

An interest to someone surely - I have my eye on that Sudden Strike deal. All 3 original games, plus their expansions, plus the new game for 42.49. Not Bad, that's a lot Game man.

Fuck man, anyone who can get out of Russia now needs to while they still can. I imagine it's not much longer until the Iron Curtain goes back up. It'll be the bad ol' days of the USSR but under the oligarchs which is even worse.

If Russia were left to the oligarchs it would quickly become a client state of the USA. I guess you missed the last ten years or so of Putin's stamping out of the baron capitalists who wanted nothing more than implement the conservative dream of "free market" capitalism.

This is why I scoff at people who keep suggesting that Trump is some kind of Putin's crony. Trump makes Putin look good, he cares nothing about US national interests, apart from lining his own pockets, which plays right into Putin's hands.

Trying to explain that to Cutter, who's beliefs are across the board is somewhat futile and search for Russian boogeymen under their bed as if they still living in a Cold War Era. Most people have little clue what struggles Russia and their people have gone through with the fall of the Soviet Union.

Sounds like she is in shock and may not have seen someone die before. In the video it looks like her sister's head had severe trauma and she kept telling her to "wake up." Unfortunate that it happened, but that's fate. Don't drive while using your cellphone.
